Neptune brings German well on stream

Neptune Energy has brought on stream the Adorf Z16 gas well in northwest Germany, the company reported on January 14.

Initial production tests indicate flow rates of up to 2,800 barrels of oil equivalent/day, Neptune said, anticipating that this would bring the company's overall output at the licence to 4,000 boe/d.

Z16 is targeting the Adorf Carboniferous field, which was discovered in 2020 and began flowing gas in October that year. The well was drilled to a depth of 5,378 m into the Carboniferous formation, and has been tied to a gas processing plant.

Further development is underway, with Neptune currently constructing a new well pad. A third well is scheduled to be drilled there in the second quarter of 2022.

Neptune is the 100% owner of the Adorf Carboniferous field.
